    Great advice that echoes what my grandad always said – you will win if you understand that people do business with people. Nobody is like “you” and if “you” have values and a way of conducting yourself that folks like, and you are consistent, capped off with the ability to do a good job, why won’t you do well!

    Values, Relationships & Community

    It takes allot of effort – years maybe to build this but it will eventually come. I was skeptical about this but you just have to stick with it.
    Proper capital investment, book keeping, taxes, attention to changing market conditions. -All of it! What a load to deal with!!

    Darren hit’s this point exactly that the only way to be around later is too lay this groundwork concerning the relationships and values.

    As a service provider in the home improvement market I am constantly checking this by how much work I shows up during the winter months.

    Without the relationships, values and community that I have built, I am guessing that the phone would be silent ,no leads to follow up on etc. I am not a “low priced or value contractor”

    Low prices will only last a short time -then you out because another low ball provider will be around to take your place.

      You hit the nail on the head Alan! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I actually need to talk to you so give a ring when you get a chance.
